Activate Patients’ Curative Powers through Effective Communication
The ability to effect physiological changes through human communication is absolutely critical to the success of clinicians in the medical and dental fields. Yet, the science of human communication is too often ignored in the training of healing professionals. What if you could learn how to use your voice, linguistic patterns, and body language to substantially reduce a patient’s experience of acute and chronic pain, enhance wound healing, and even restructure their cellular DNA? How can you drastically alter the toxic environments found in most healing institutions and clinics? This course is based upon over 10,000 studies documented by the United States National Institutes of Health and research conducted by such reputable institutions as the Harvard Medical School, the University of Sydney (Australia), the University of Parma (Italy), and many others.

Suggestion is much more than a factor in everyday social interaction. When properly employed, the impact that we have on others and ourselves can be tremendous. However, when recklessly engaged, the opposite is true. Subjective evaluations, brain-imaging findings, and histological research clearly show that suggestion modulates sensory processing and affects neurological and physiological systems. For instance, activation of the right dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) during the initiation of suggestion can result in a reaction of the secondary somatosensory cortex, as well as activation in the insula and anterior cortex. In turn, through limbic system responses, this triggers the endocrine system and impacts the functioning of both the innate and adaptive immune systems. So, if you are still thinking that suggestion is merely an “all in your mind” concept, you are both right and wrong.

This course will teach you how to use your communication techniques as an adjunct to your allopathic healing skills. Designed by an experienced clinical hypnotherapist, educator, speaker, and mind/body trainer, this course will present profound, scientifically-based skills which will greatly enhance patient care and results.
